(one where you can hear yourself talk -
not nightclubs), having dinners in or out, and a healthy slab of

the alone time to really do anything except watch a DVD) -

I've always been cynical about internet meetings. They seem to be
either strange, half-real relationships or Gaydar style hook-ups.
However I have already met a couple of nice, normal people on OK
Cupid, so decent run so far! None was exactly relationship
material, but, working on percentages, I'm doing alright.
I am wise, naive, and contradictory
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a remedial therapist - that is massage
, Bowen Technique
, Bach Flowers
. I work in a busy
multi-disciplinary practice in the CBD - City Clinic on King.
I get a fair bit of exercise - from my job, walking my dogs (at
least an hour every day and more on weekends), walking to work, the
pub, friends places etc and I've just started at the gym. Yes, I
caved. I decided it was time to get in before the downhill slide
gained too much momentum. I'm not fanatical at all. I just do some
simple weights stuff, mainly targeted at core strength and
endurance. I do feel better for it. The best part is that the gym
has a steam room, so I always have the motivation of hot
(sometimes), nude men. Yay!
I'm also studying almost continually - nothing major, just skills
updating and the odd personal imterest course. Although I am
thinking of studying counselling next year, both as an essential
skill for my current work and a possible career path for when my
poor hands wear out.
I'm also on the committee of a volunteer group that has taken a
fair ol' whack of time this year, but that should slow down soon.
We lost a couple of paid staff, so the committee were working
harder than ever, but we have new staff starting soon.
I’m really good at

Too shagged to do anything. Leftovers and a DVD. Maybe sit on the
internet for a while. Although, now I am making myself go to the
gym on many Fridays to burn what tiny amounts of energy still
reside in this little frame.

You are together, friendly and looking for an adventure or two. Or
just a shag really.
I don't really have a "type". Shoot me a message and we'll see. I
have this tendency to over-analyse these profiles and often decide,
just from what's writtent hat someone is unsuitable without ever
finding out properly.
There are certain things that are off-putting. Addictions are
baaad. I don't mind if someone likes the odd endulgence, but
frequent use is kinda sad really.
Alos, I've done the whole relationship with a closet case and it
really ended up hurting me, so never again.
